    Background: TEHERAN, IRAN

    Iran says it is massing troops for anew assault on Iraqi positions. A commentary by Teheran Radio on July 12 said that Iran was about to end the war with Iraq through "a grand and historic and historic battle". After early Iraqi successes in the 22-month conflict, the tide turned, and Iranian troops drove their enemies back from positions they had occupied in Iran. Iraq says it has now pulled its forces back to the pre-war frontier, but Iran disputes this, and Teheran wants reparations and the overthrow of Iraq's President Saddam Hussein.To underline its intentions, Iran has rejected a United Nations Security council resolution calling for a peaceful solution. The war effort has meanwhile been boosted by a series of patriotic rallies in Teheran. One was held by Iraqis living in Iran. They marched to the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) chanting slogans critical of the Iraqi President. They were joined by Iranian marchers, and chanted pro-Khomeini slogans after a patriotic speech by Ayatollah Hakim, a senior religious figure. In a further bid to strengthen its war effort, the Iranian army is being boosted by scores of young volunteers. They queue for army clothing equipment, then head for teheran station to catch the first train to the war front, fanatically devoted to what is described as a religious war, and to the Islamic Republic.
